Two meetings scheduled this week could finalize plans for the Luxemburg Speedway this summer.
A group called Kewaunee County Racing Association has been negotiating with the county for the rights to hold stock car racing at the fairgrounds in Luxemburg. The KCRA submitted the only proposal after the previous promoter decided not to continue this year, saying they could not make their operation economically feasible.
While the county has traditionally sought at least 15 races a year, the KCRA is proposing a 12-race card.
The Luxemburg Village Board on Tuesday night will consider the group’s request to hold the races from 5 to 9 p.m. Sunday nights. They have been held on Fridays in the past.
The board is scheduled to meet at 7 p.m. Tuesday (Jan. 14) in the Municipal Office Building, 206 Maple St., Luxemburg.
Two nights later the County Board is scheduled to consider the contract with KCRA to run the races, with the county receiving a $1,500 per race rental fee. The board meets at 6 p.m. Thursday (Jan. 16) in at the County Administration Center, 810 Lincoln St., Kewaunee.
